Summary

Written by Leslie Knapp, this module explores how molecular genetic methods are used to understand the organization and expression of genetic information in humans and nonhuman primates. You'll learn about the common laboratory methods used to study genetic variation and evolution in molecular anthropology. Examples are drawn from up-to-date research on human evolutionary origins and comparative primate genomics to demonstrate that scientific research is an ongoing process with theories frequently being questioned and reevaluated. Mitochondrial DNA and the human-chimp biological connection also are examined in this fascinating and timely module.
